If you’re planning on going to the high country this Thanksgiving, this is great news! Governor Polis asked for the express lanes of I-70 to be open longer this weekend and during Christmas and they now will be.

Starting Wednesday 11/22/23 – Sunday 11/26/23 (Thanksgiving Weekend) :

WB 70 Express Lanes will be open 7am-7pm

EB 70 Express Lanes will be open 9am-8pm

During Christmas week, the mountain express lanes will be open 24 hours a day from Saturday, Dec. 23 through Monday, Jan. 1.

Why aren’t they always open?  Apparently the government restricts the number of days they can be open and the rest is supposed to be for emergency vehicles. Governor Polis has asked the government to revisit the number of days that the express lanes in Colorado can be open.

Happy Thanksgiving!
